    Changing out the stock HT plug wire and boot is one of the first things on my to do list, I've got the parts (NGK B6HS and a better quality lead/boot) but I've just realised that the CDI is entirely sealed with some kind of black waxy looking plastic. There are no screws or plates that are able to be removed, so it looks practically impossible to get in to.

    Question is, how do I fit the new lead if the CDI is impenetrable. I know I could simpy cut the stock lead close to the base of the CDI and wire it from there, but wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a higher quality part?

    Or do I simply hack it apart and rebox the guts back into a little waterproof circuit box after it's wired, providing it isn't damaged.

    The spark plug wire just unscrews at the cdi. if it is hard to turn by hand use a pair of plyers , the new wire will screw back on. There is a scew that comes up from inside the box. do not try and take the box apart it is a sealed unit.
